Reading: All Day and All of the Night
Dave Davies claimed that the song was where he “ found his voice ” :
I liked the guitar sound on “ All Day And All of the Night ”, the moment individual we had. When they tried to develop amplifiers that had pre-gain and all, I thought it was n’t quite correct, and I struggled with the legal for a while. I never liked Marshalls, because they sounded like everybody else. then in the mid ’70s I started using Peavey, and people said, “ cipher uses Peavey – state and western bands use them ” [ laughs ]. I used to blow them up every nox. I used two Peavey Maces together, and it was brilliant. [ 8 ]
Billboard described the song as a “ potent submission, ” stating that the “ sensitive, gutsy delivery is maintained along with raunchy guitar heavy. ” [ 9 ]
“ Hello, I Love You ” controversies [edit ]
Similarities between the song and the Doors ‘ 1968 song, “ Hello, I Love You “ have been pointed out. Ray Davies said on the subject : “ My publisher wanted to sue. I was unwilling to do that. I think they cut a deal somewhere, but I do n’t know the details. ” [ 10 ] Dave Davies added : “ That one is the most annoy of all of them … I did a show where I played All Day and All of the Night and cling in a piece of Hello, I Love You. There was some response, there were a few smiles. But I ‘ve never understood why cipher ‘s ever said anything about it. You ca n’t say anything about the Doors. You ‘re not allowed to. ” [ 11 ] In the liner notes to the Doors Box set, Robby Krieger has denied the allegations that the song ‘s musical structure was stolen from Ray Davies. alternatively, he said the sung ‘s vibration was taken from Cream ‘s birdcall “ Sunshine of Your Love “. According to the Doors biography No One Here Gets Out Alive, courts in the UK determined in favor of Davies and any royalties for the song are paid to him. [ 12 ]
“ I Got tantalum Move ” [edit ]
primitively released entirely as a B-side to “ All Day and All of the Night ”, “ I Got tantalum Move ” has been described as indicative mood of the Kinks ‘ “ early love of the blues ”, and a “ frantic lost jewel. ” [ 13 ] [ 14 ] Jimmy Page may have appeared on the song, which gives credits as “ possibly Jimmy Page acoustic 12 string guitar, else Ray Davies ”.
